The earliest examples of pictorial art in Japan are designs engraved on prehistroic pottery and wall paintings in protohistic tombs. From the 10th to the 12th century Buddhist painting in Japan gradually broke free of Chinese influence. Secular painting flourished too, and in the decorations of the imperial palace and the residences of great noblemen a trylu Japanese mode of expression was worked out and developed. Long time has passed since the West discovered Japanese art. To begin with, it was the beauty of Japanese prints and the exquisite delicacy of Japanese lacquerware, ceramics and ivories that caught the attention of the first European connoisseurs. The aim of the present work is to trace and illustrate the long development of Japanese painting in the light of the latest results o art scholarship in Japan itself.
